Last month a theft was reported in the ward of GMC Bakshi Nagar and now yesterday another theft has taken place at the Ultrasound section of the hospital. The family along with their patient was waiting in the ultrasound ward when the theft took place.
While talking to the media a male member of the family said “at 2 pm I took my mother who is the patient to the ultrasound section. When we came out of the room I put my hand in my pocket and found that all the money in my pocket is missing. I’m a poor person and after working tirelessly I have saved 30,000 for my mother’s treatment. Now I am penniless and how can I continue my mother’s treatment. I am a resident of Kana Chak and have called my known one. After he arrives, only then my mother’s treatment will continue”.
The female member of the family said ” we have approached the police station but the police officials are not cooperating with us. For the past 3 hours, my mother has remained hungry. In the meantime, if she dies then who’ll be responsible for her death?”
No services in GMC are free of cost and people are compelled to carry money. But we request everyone to take care of their money as the security of the hospital has failed.
